3701:1-37-23 Additional requirements for transfer of category one and category two quantities of radioactive material.

A licensee transferring a category one or category two quantity of radioactive material to a licensee of the U. S. nuclear regulatory commission or an agreement state shall meet the license verification provisions listed below instead of those listed in rule 3701:1-40-19 of the Administrative Code:

(A) Any licensee transferring category one quantities of radioactive material to a licensee of the U. S. nuclear regulatory commission or an agreement state, prior to conducting such transfer, shall verify with the U.S. nuclear regulatory commission's license verification system or the license issuing authority that the transferee's license authorizes the receipt of the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred and that the licensee is authorized to receive radioactive material at the location requested for delivery. If the verification is conducted by contacting the license issuing authority, the transferor shall document the verification. For transfers within the same organization, the licensee does not need to verify the transfer.

(B) Any licensee transferring category two quantities of radioactive material to a licensee of the U. S. nuclear regulatory commission or an agreement state, prior to conducting such transfer, shall verify with the U.S. nuclear regulatory commission's license verification system or the license issuing authority that the transferee's license authorizes the receipt of the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred. If the verification is conducted by contacting the license issuing authority, the transferor shall document the verification. For transfers within the same organization, the licensee does not need to verify the transfer.

(C) In an emergency where the licensee cannot reach the license issuing authority and the license verification system is nonfunctional, the licensee may accept a written certification by the transferee that it is authorized by license to receive the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred. The certification must include the license number, current revision number, issuing agency, expiration date, and for a category one shipment the authorized address. The licensee shall keep a copy of the certification. The certification must be confirmed by use of the U.S. nuclear regulatory commission's license verification system or by contacting the license issuing authority by the end of the next business day.

(D) The transferor shall keep a copy of the verification documentation as a record for three years.
